Infinite Powers
 How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe
 By: Steven Strogatz

 Length: 10 hrs and 41 mins
 Unabridged

Overall

Performance

Story
Infinite Powers recounts how calculus tantalized and thrilled its inventors, starting with its first glimmers in ancient Greece and bringing us right up to the discovery of gravitational waves. Strogatz reveals how this form of math rose to the challenges of each age: how to determine the area of a circle with only sand and a stick; how to explain why Mars goes "backwards" sometimes; how to turn the tide in the fight against AIDS.

A Tour of the Calculus

 Narrated by: Dennis Holland
 Length: 10 hrs and 3 mins

Overall

Performance

Story
Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle or the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world is the subject of this dazzling book by a writer of extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio.

Story
Think of a number between one and 10. No, hang on, let's make this interesting. Between zero and infinity. Even if you stick to the whole numbers, there are a lot to choose from  an infinite number in fact. Throw in decimal fractions, and infinity suddenly gets an awful lot bigger (is that even possible?). And then there are the negative numbers, the imaginary numbers, the irrational numbers like pi which never end. It literally never ends.

The Universe Speaks in Numbers
 How Modern Math Reveals Nature's Deepest Secrets

Story
One of the great insights of science is that the universe has an underlying order. The supreme goal of physicists is to understand this order through laws that describe the behavior of the most basic particles and the forces between them. For centuries, we have searched for these laws by studying the results of experiments. Since the 1970s, however, experiments at the world's most powerful atomsmashers have offered few new clues. So some of the world's leading physicists have looked to a different source of insight: modern mathematics.

Probably will sink in after five or six times thru
Is there anything you would change about this book?
For the price, it is great. It might should be longer or more in depth but then it would cost more.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
It is a little dry but there are not many math books on here as of now.
What three words best describe James Powers’s voice?
Straightforward, easy, fast.
Do you think Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics needs a followup book? Why or why not?
Sure, hopefully as cheap again.
Any additional comments?
It seems to be the perfect book to throw on when I cannot decide which book to do next. I do not really care if I absorb it through each time; repeated usage will do the trick. Quick and painless but overall helpful.

I'm working on retaking the GRE and I wanted to increase my math score. Of course, I'm doing actual study, but used this audio book to continue the math focus during my morning commutes. It's a good overview.

horrible, did not learn a thing
What would have made Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics better?
to not talk through problems like one should already know or understand it.
If one did already understand, to talk through each step.
A narrator with more energy, less boring voice. Sounds like he is dying
